What should you expect when you use TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis to improve problem-solving?


Hint: Compare costs of human error, faulty problem-solving, and equipment breakdowns vs. training your team to find/fix problems.

Everyone experiences different work circumstances; unfortunately, problem-solving and humans making mistakes are commonly a part of work life. The thing we can all do is improve how we work by problem-solving proactively. 

Problem-solving with TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis is an essential work tool—whether you’re investigating an incident, eliminating a recurring problem, or solving an equipment dilemma.

By proactively eliminating/reducing (risks) most human errors and equipment problems, think of the costs you save by keeping employees safe and equipment reliable with TapRooT® RCA. Get a more concrete idea of cost savings from the blog post by Mark Paradies, “SkyLine Mines Success Story: Using TapRooT® to Improve Investigations, Stop Fault Finding, Reduce Injuries, & Cut Workers’ Compensation Costs.”
